Larry Livermore Brings How To Ru(i)n A Record Label to Quimby’s 3/26

Mar
26
7:00 pm

Hot To Ruin CoverIn How To Ru(i)n A Record Label (Don Giovanni Records), Larry Livermore describes the spectacular rise and ignominious collapse of Lookout Records, the iconic label he co-founded in 1987 and which helped launch the careers of Green Day, Operation Ivy, Screeching Weasel, and a host of other artists.

Paying due homage to his Detroit roots, the author recounts his personal journey, from Berkeley, California to Bialystok, Poland, as he built the label from the ground up, only to walk away abruptly from what had grown into a multi-million company when it was at the peak of its success.

“[An] engrossing account of being in the epicenter of the East Bay punk scene when it exploded, told from the perspective of the man holding the detonator.”  – Liz Prince, author of Tomboy

“A great book by a true veteran. Well told, funny and entertainingly opinionated.” – Jesse Michaels, Operation Ivy

Larry Livermore was co-founder of Lookout Records, editor and publisher of Lookout magazine, and a longtime columnist for Maximum Rocknroll and Punk Planet. His first book, Spy Rock Memories, was published in 2013 by Don Giovanni Records.

*GRAPHIC NOVELS*

The Complete Wimmen’s Comix (Fantagraphcis) $100.00 – In the late ’60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium — but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen’s Comix. Within two years the Wimmen’s Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America — Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty-year run, the women of Wimmen’s tackled subjects the guys wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Most issues of Wimmen’s Comix have been long out of print, so it’s about time these pioneering cartoonists’ work received their due. Presented as a gorgeous two-volume slipcased set, The Complete Wimmen’s Comix includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain’t Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published. Edited with an introduction by Trina Robbins.

Screen Shot 2016-02-27 at 8.21.05 PMThe Pirate Book offers a broad view on media piracy as well as a variety of comparative perspectives on recent issues and historical facts regarding piracy. It contains a compilation of texts on grassroots situations whose stories describe strategies developed to share, distribute and experience cultural content outside of the confines of local economies, politics or laws. These stories recount the experiences of individuals from India, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Mali and China. The book is structured in four parts and begins with a collection of stories on piracy dating back to the invention of the printing press and expanding to broader issues (historical and modern antipiracy technologies, geographically specific issues, as well as the rules of the Warez scene, its charters, structure and visual culture…).

The Pirate Book, a compilation of stories about sharing, distributing and experiencing cultural contents outside the boundaries of local economies, politics, or laws.
